- FPlatformProperties::IniPlatformName()

- FPlatformProperties::PlatformName()

ITargetPlatformManagerModule* TPM = GetTargetPlatformManager();

 if (TPM)

 {

 const TArray<ITargetPlatform\*>& Platforms = TPM->GetActiveTargetPlatforms();

 for (int32 Index = 0; Index < Platforms.Num(); ++Index)

Get build configuration & UBT settings from C++ at runtime:

 EBuildConfigurations::Type FApp::GetBuildConfiguration()

 {

 #if UE_BUILD_DEBUG

 return EBuildConfigurations::Debug;

 #elif UE_BUILD_DEVELOPMENT

 // Detect DebugGame using an extern variable in monolithic configurations, or a command line argument in modular configurations.

 #if IS_MONOLITHIC

 extern const bool GIsDebugGame;

 return GIsDebugGame? EBuildConfigurations::DebugGame : EBuildConfigurations::Development;

 #else

 return IsRunningDebug() ? EBuildConfigurations::DebugGame : EBuildConfigurations::Development;

 #endif

 #elif UE_BUILD_SHIPPING

 return EBuildConfigurations::Shipping;

 #elif UE_BUILD_TEST

 return EBuildConfigurations::Test;

 #else

 return EBuildConfigurations::Unknown;

 #endif

 }
